Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
what is the recommended working temperature of the oil in the gear (auto transmission)? what is the minimum temp and the max temp?
(1) Answer
The oil should be about the same temperature as your coolant, in fact it is cooled by the radiator itself. So, it needs to be about 160 for minimal functionality, after a warm up period of course and over 225 degrees, well that is getting close to the point where it may burn the fluid.
